 3 + Pro Drills Offered at Kennworth Tennis Center

tennis matchTennis Professional William Fawcett is now offering 3 + Pro Drills in the morning at Kennworth Tennis Center. These small group lessons are available Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00am-10:00am and 10:00am-11:00am. The cost is $15 per player.
 

These drills involve 3 players approximately the same level splitting the cost of a private lesson and we work on the needs of the three individuals as a group. For example; one person wants to work on serves, the second volleys, and the third overheads. We spend about 15 minutes working on each stroke. The final 15-20 minutes is playing out doubles points with the pro (William) as the fourth player and we work on strategy, shot placement, and doubles movement.

 

To register text or call William at (770) 265-3599 or e-mail premiertennis@comcast.net.
